Dogsledding in Terelj National Park, Mongolia

We went dog sledding and horseback riding on the Tuul River in Terelj National Park. It was a little intense at times, but well worth the experience. The dogs aren’t as vicious as they look in the photos, they were just really, really anxious to get running.

Khustain Nuruu National Park

Today we visited the Tahki, horses that were native to Mongolia and teetered on the brink of extinction in the last century. They had been reintroduced to Mongolia and can now be found (with a patient eye) in the National Park.

More on the horses here.
